New Delhi: Former MP and actor Ramya created another controversy on Wednesday when she said that the leaders of BJP-RSS were not a part of the freedom movement but joined hands with British.

Ramya was responding to a question over her “Pakistan is not hell” remark.

The 33-year-old MP said that it was Congress and its leaders who secured freedom for the country.

Ramya said that people need to stay united like the saying ‘Vasudaiva kutumbakam.’ 

“Let those who doubt my patriotism doubt it, I cannot help. We have different languages, religions and castes in our country, but people need to stay united like the saying ‘Vasudaiva kutumbakam.’ We need to take steps to ensure that they stay united. We should love all, and wish good for all. Like the way we express love for someone, sometimes we need to express our love for nation,” Ramya said.

Ramya got criticism from all sides for her comment on Pakistan. The BJP leaders protested against her and some activists even hurled eggs at her.
